His brother John b.1843 also became a master mariner and lived with his wife Phoebe at Rock House. They were to have several children, one of whom David Jenkins b.1870, became a ships engineer and was one of the survivors of the sinking of the S.S. Cadeby in 1915. David’s three brothers all joined the church; Llewelyn became a Canon and Thomas and John William were vicars. The latter was named after his cousin John William, Sophia’s brother who died at eighteen months of age in February 1874. Thomas had the privilege of playing association football for Wales on two occasions. He was picked for the national team a third time, but the Bishop of St. Asaph would not allow him time off, and he was not asked to play for Wales again. Another Borth man, William Morris of Brynrodyn Farm, played rugby union twice for Wales in the 1960’s. Two other relatives were at sea around 1870; one was Thomas Jenkins of Rock House, on the Lady of the Forest, and Richard Jenkins, the son of Thomas and Rebecca Jenkins, who was lost at sea in 1874.
